Cumberland Weird Church October schedule

Submitted to The Record

The Hebrew word shalom is understood in English simply as peace, but that translation falls short of its true meaning. Shalom refers to the peace that comes as a result of there being justice for all.

According to the founder of Weird Church, the Reverend Ingrid Brown, the timing is ideal.

“It is only fitting that the October theme of our Weird Church activities is peace, which is a great follow-up to September’s theme of justice,” she said.

All are welcome to attend any of these events.

Weird Church hosts a Sunday Service at 4 p.m. followed by a Centering Prayer at 5:15 p.m. at 2688 Penrith Ave. in Cumberland and online at www.weirdchurchcumberland.com

COVID protocols are in place.

Additionally, ‘Coffee and Conversations that Matter’ is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. at No. 6 Mine Park in Cumberland.

“Weird Church in the Woods” is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 24 at 3 p.m. at No. 6 Mine Park in Cumberland. This event allows each participant to begin a journey into the woods and deep into himself/herself for this walking meditation, and time to reflect on peace and to listen for a call to action. Participants will be using provided technology to ensure safety.

More information and registration details are available at www.weirdchurchcumberland.com/events
